Alumni Engagement Intern
Awae started working as the Alumni Engagement Intern at Futures and Options in February of 2019. Since then his responsibilities have included: cataloging transitional survey data in form assembly, working closely with the Alumni Engagement Assistant in preparation for ensuring the highest response rate with the alumni survey, monitoring the frequency of responses between mentors and mentees for the College Success and High School Success programs for the years 2018-2019, and brainstorming ideas for possible networking events to bolster mentor and mentee participation.
He began his budding career in the Green Sector by participating in clubs at Fort Hamilton High School like the Make a Difference Gardening Club and outside organizations like the stewardship program at the Lower East Side Ecology Center. This interest, along with his participation with Futures and Options as a student, led him to intern with organizations in the Green Sector, such as NYC Parks Brooklyn Recreation and New Yorkers 4 Parks. In looking to further his goal of working in the Green Sector, Awae wants to pursue a career in the education field, with the hope of making Green careers more accessible to other young people.
